Surely you must be dreaming to think that people who would use
stackexchange to do the searching will be more than those who search the
searchable list archives.

Hasn't this been discussed on this list before?  Oh, yes back in
February, here is an example of how searchable this list is
http://www.google.com/search?q=stackexchage+site%3Adrupal.org.  My
preference is and will always be an email list instead of some online
form.  That doesn't mean the online support forum isn't any more or less
